Blue 45

Great cooler for a great price. Ordered cooler and 3 days later it shows up at the front door, can't asked for a better service then that.

great cooler

Had the original 45 and had to let it go to a buddy in need so naturally I went back for the new version. Not a huge difference between the two-- the secondary drain plug is great and definitely speeds up the process. Originally I had issues with the seal being too tight and keeping the lid stuck down, but I trimmed about a half inch off and it works perfectly now. With a block if dry ice and a 10 pond bag of ice I kept meat FROZEN for over a week.

I've had my 45 for 5 months (all through summer). It is locked into the back of my truck to keep drinks iced for my job sites. I put ice in it every Monday morning by draining all water then adding. I add ice again Wednesday night late and it's good until Monday. Always works perfect even in 110° Dallas weather.

Tan 45

Let me just start by saying thank you for your company and making these coolers. I couldn't wait until it got here, and when it did I was NOT disappointed. Threw some beer and just enough ice over the top of the beer again only like 4-5 scoops maybe 4 lbs of ice. That alone kept the ice/water at 30 degrees and the air pocket at 40 degrees for 5 days and we drank plenty of that beer so it wasn't filling it up and locking the lid down for a week opened multiple times. Bought a white 65 now I'm looking to get the 145 also

Last Cooler you'll ever buy

by - verified purchaser
I just purchased my RTIC 45 a few weeks ago and it has already surpassed my expectations. Had drinks in it for after work but our fridge went out so it's playing the roll of refrigerator right now along with my RTIC 65. Best cooler by far! If only they built fridge as strong as RTIC coolers.

Fantastic Product

by - verified purchaser
I had this cooler for 1 week, when a catfish spine punctured the inside. I contacted RTIC and they immediately sent me a replacement. The replacement works so well that I bought a 65 quart.

Awesome cooler

We use this cooler on our boat as live aboards. We had a party one Saturday with others on the dock and told them to come back later for left over drinks. 4 days later they returned to get the leftovers...still had ice.

I have a tan 20 and a soft 30 and just ordered a white 65. I love my first two coolers a lot and cant wait for my third. Very durable and easily keeps cans and food cold for days.

I have to haul meat on occasion and wanted something to keep it frozen. The first time I used it I put some ice in packed the meat then topped off with ice. The ice had melted a little before I put it in the cooler. When I got home three hour later the melt from the ice had refrozen and I had to take a hammer to bust the ice from around the meat. I could not believe it. Great cooler to say the least. The lid seals so tight I have to give it a good tug to break the seal. Very happy with my purchase. I just put an order in for the 65.

These coolers are great! they are without a doubt firefighter proof!! No more broken hinges, latches, etc. Its also nice that they hold ice as long as they do for those long days on the fire line. The price.......well, enough said!!

Very Satisfied

by - verified purchaser
We received our cooler for Christmas. What a great gift!!! Put it to the test and it held ice and drinks for 8 days before I had to dump the ice out! There was still solid ice in it and not just water!!!! Love these products, just order the soft cooler.

Great Cooler

I have had the 45 for a few months now and it works as described. Very strong tough cooler that once closed will not leak outside air in. It is a deal.


by - verified purchaser
I only write reviews for very good or very bad service. This one is for spectacular service. I ordered the 45 on 12/29/16. At 1:31 I received my purchase confirmation email. At 1:35 I received my order has shipped confirmation! Fantastic. Received my cooler 1/4/17, and that was with a 2-3 day holiday delay! Fantastic product and even better service. Highly recommend.

Love the cooler best cooler ever owned holds 2 cases of drinks and plenty of ice for almost 2 weeks without having to refill with ice


by - verified purchaser
I bought the 45qt at the beginning of summer, didn't get to use it until Hurricane Matthew. I put 20 lbs ice in it, along with refrigerated items after I lost power. Food began to freeze it was so cold in the cooler. Ice last a week! And that was only 1/2 full of ice.

Best Cooler!

by - verified purchaser
This cooler is tough, good looking and keeps ice frozen. It is noticeably heavier than cheaper coolers but expected if you want a lifetime cooler. Love it!
